Ponce De Leon (USA 2014)

Bay colt 17.2 hh
Owner: Circle F Farms
Breeder: Circle F Farms

by Say Florida Sandy x Riboletta (Roi Normond)

$0 0-0-0-0

Trainer's Notes: bred for dirt and handicaps; we'll see how he goes. Sire was a veritable tank; ninety-eight starts over 8 years; they don't build 'em like this anymore.

Owner's Notes: Personal Favorite from this crop; I'm a big fan of the sire and we were very lucky to be able to send Riboletta to him for his last foal in game. The ONLY son of Say Florida Sandy in PhotoFinish, he does have a G2-winning half-sister who managed to place in the money at distances ranging from 5-11f. Campaigned mostly on turf, she has a Place and 3 Shows at 8-10f dirt.

Bloodstock Manager: Family 2-d; Halpotype F. Family includes Hurry On, Northern Dancer, Cannonade, Mother Goose, Spectacular Bid, and Meteor.

Special Notes: Full List breed. *Was born with an inverted growth curve and was adjusted by Game Steward.
